over-exposured mushroom photos not suitable for publication. Google "Enewetak" - go to the 10 or 11 oclock position of the atoll and see a crater about 6,200' wide, 165' deep. Looking for responses from any and all shipmates present on Nov. 1, 1952 Dick @ firstname.lastname@example.org

I remember the days of sipping tea, wearing my nappy shorts and silly hat, while waiting for the big blast. Where are those good times today? When there are so many happy people needing a good nuking?
I knew a girl who was very anti-war and Liberal who asked "why did they invade Iwo Jima and get thousands of people killed when the war was almost over?" After recovering from the shock of her ignorance, I replied; "Because they didn't KNOW the war was almost over. Because they weren't smart enough to look in a history book like YOU did!"
Is a thought process really cause to liquefy a country and everyone and everything even down to the ants in the ground and birds in the sky? Who are we to allow anyone to hold such a device and then threaten our own people that if this tool of massive killing were to get away from us, it would surely be used against us. How do we know that for sure, how do we know that anyone could ever see fit to make a moonscape of this place just because. If it were put to a vote, if the people could be shown this video before such a device were made, if they could be asked. "Can, should we make this?" would the people say yes? I would say no, On some level i think that we as a people should be ashamed that we introduced this to humanity. Other than that it was a good movie considering that all the guys were just regular folks.

I appreciate this bit of history and a reminder of my Navy years. My only comment is one I have stated often, it is my prayer that our nation will never experience an Atomic attack. This is further reason why we need to understand we are subject to enemies today who would use an Atomic weapon if they have the means. It is to bad that so many in America do not understand what we are facing.

He said that he sat with me thru it, so that I "wouldn't be scared," but I know he wanted to see it, too.
For myself, I thought it was pretty cool, and, you know what...it still is.
The truly frightening thing: sizewise...this was NOTHING! Thank God that for the most part, the world is a bit smarter this day and age. There are the odd exceptions of course.

So go ahead and watch this source film, and then go find a copy of that documentary. Both are essential records of the darker side of our scientific and military past, and both present very capably a major turning point in human history that just happened to take place on Halloween.
